Talend Data Mapper (TDM) Basics

Talend Data Mapper provides a comprehensive set of implemented standards like EDI and COBOL.

TDM is a complete and easy hierarchical mapping tool that also works well for very complex XML structures.

This course begins with exercises to make you familiar with the tool handling and structure of TDM. It gives an overview and shows advanced features offered in the advanced course like EDI, COBOL.
